April 20– The Adamsville High School chorus and theater class will perform their annual production on April 22-24.
The show, titled “Back to the 80s,” includes drama as well as singing and dancing, and features many familiar songs from popular movies of the 1980s.
The plot of the show focuses on a mashup of characters from different movies who must work together to ensure that history happens the way it should.
The students in the class have been working on the production all semester and are eager to perform. Audiences will recognize most of the songs, which include “Soul Man” from The Blues Brothers, “Power of Love” from Back to the Future, “Footloose” from the movie of the same title, “Time of My Life” from Dirty Dancing, as well as many others.
Characters and dialogue also draw from a variety of other popular movies, including Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Breakfast Club, Rocky IV, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, and Ghost Busters.
The chorus and theater class is directed by Pam Gladish, who leads vocals and dancing, and Jared Walters, who teaches acting.
